It s been quite a while since OnePlus launched the OnePlus 2 in India, but due to its invite-only system, not many have been able to get their hands on the latest smartphone. Despite over 4.3 million reservations from across the globe, the company had been struggling to distribute the invites. Now, the company has announced on its forum that it will be giving out 3,000 OnePlus 2 invites over the next couple of days.

Those who are interested in earning an invite will have to participate in the #InviteCarnival contest, which kicked off today and will continue for the next two days.

On its official forum, OnePlus posted, Love quizzes, puzzles, trivia and the like? Then this ought to be right up your alley. Be among the first few to answer them and bag an invite. Total of 3,000 invites are up for grabs! With the passage of time, we will roll out more number of invites.”
There are however, some stipulations attached to the contest. Only one entry will be considered per contest. While users can participate in as many contests as they want, only one invite will be shared per person. The company will be selecting winners on first-come-first-serve basis. And to maintain fair play, the company urges users to participate without taking anyone s help.

It also features a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel selfie snapper, and connectivity options like dual-SIM card slots, LTE support, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
